World War II- “D-Day” This Day 1944

On this day in 1944 probably the most important day in the 20th Century. D-Day. We know how it all turns out. It turned out well but what if the Allied Forces had been turned back on the beaches of Normandy, France? How much longer would WWII have lasted? This was a ‘must win’ situation.

  1. Thanks for remind everyone of the great sacrifice made on this day. My brother, whom I never knew, was a paratrooper who jumped with the 101 into France the night of June 5. He was wounded and died on the way to Britain. Thank you for remembering and caring. Namaste. . . .Anne

    • I’ve been thinking a lot about this as I go through the morning..we are losing our WWII veterans. To have served in WWII a person would have to be in their 80’s now… Thanks for sharing your story!

  2. agreed – thank you for sharing that.
    i have to say i made the trip to normandy a few years ago, and it was a life changing event. i cannot imagine how that morning went for these men. i have had the fortune to meet a couple of the men who landed at omaha beach. humble about the whole thing. just doing what anyone else would have done they said. i have to look around now and laugh because i know that is simply not true.
    while i was there i had the opportunity to speak to several german tourists that were visiting as well.
    rest in peace soldiers. God bless all of you.

  3. Hans – your ‘must win’ reminds me of former coach Marv Levy – a reporter asked him about a nfl game being a must win. Levy as you know big student of history corrected him – WWII was a must win, this is just a game.
